BSX Series BERTScope Bit Error Rate Tester

BSX Series BERTScope Bit Error Rate Tester

A fast-moving market requires faster Rx test processes and workflows. The BSX Series BERTScope® is the quickest path to compliance. This BERT receiver test solution has unique features that take the complexity out of receiver testing and brings confidence to Gen3/4 designs.

  • Single solution for Receiver stress testing, debug and compliance.
  • Test Gen3/Gen4 standards - PCIe, SAS/SATA, USB3.1, DP + propriety standards.
  • Handshaking and link training for devices running up to 32 Gb/s.
